Blessing of the Fleet

Shrimp nets and decorative flags adorn the rigging of the St. Christopher, a shrimp boat, on Monday, July 10, 2017, at the shrimp basin in Brownsville, Texas. The vessel was used in an annual ceremony where ships and their captains receive a blessing before departing to the Gulf of Mexico at the beginning of the shrimping season.
